Located on the Gulf of Piran, on the Adriatic Sea coast, lies the Slovenian town of Piran. Having been shaped by the Venetian Republic and Austria-Hungary, the town's historical monuments are quite different from those found in other parts of the country. The town's walls were built to protect it from the Ottomans and many sections of the walls, hailing from different periods, remain and are a popular attraction with visitors.
Located inside the old town walls are charming narrow streets providing visitors with more than a hint of what the town used to be like. In the town's main square sits a statue of perhaps the most famous man in Piran, the well known Guiseppe Tartini. He was a composer and virtuoso violinist who was born in a house a short distance from the square. In the north of Piran's town centre the road takes travellers past the hamlet of Fiesa into Strunjan, while to the south the coastal road leads to Portoroz, with its famous beach. The town eases gently into the new town of Lucija with its very famous marina. Beyond the smaller peninsula of Seca the Secovlje saltpans open to view.
From the town's port ferries operate to Venice in Italy.
Porec is a Croatian town and the most popular holiday resort in Istria and is frequently voted the top resort in Croatia by the Croatian National Tourist Office. The principal tourist areas in the town are the two bays that lie to the south of the town. They are named Zelena Laguna (Green Lagoon) and Plava Laguna (Blue Lagoon) and are almost like small towns in their own right with their own hotels, camping facilities, a marina and shopping and entertainment areas. There are a number of sights of historical interest to be found in Porec's Old Town which include the 6th century Euphrasian Basilica which is beautifully preserved and is well known for its gold mosaics. The Basilica, which was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997, is in fact a collection of buildings that includes a baptistery and the Bishop's Palace.
Ferry services from the town's port depart to Venice in Italy.
